The boring details
This summer, a particular by WOW Air caught everyone’s attention. And I say everyone because every single one of my friend circles brought up a trip to Iceland thanks to, what I can only call a very successful ad campaign by WOW Air. The advertisement highlighted really cheap flights to Iceland.
After watching the deal and discussing it for quite a while, within two days notice a close friend [who is also a colleague], two of her friends and I decided to go for it and booked our flights. Although, by this point, the flight costs have almost doubled the promotional offer of ~$250 CAD that originally got everyone interested. Not to mention the $119.98 CAD extra we had to pay for our checked luggage. We wanted to travel light since we would be on the road throughout the trip, we each shared one suitcase.
The following is a rough breakdown of all the expenses paid on top of the air fare. We shared this expense between 4 travelers. [This does on include any of the meal expenses]
|Car rental fees||400.41EUR||618.93|
|Úthlíd Cottages (2 nights)||Bláskógabyggð||509.81|
|2 bedroom apartment||Stöðvarfjörður||158|
|2 bedroom apartment||Akureyri||114|
I think this trip cost around 2k (CAD) including everything for me.
These are the spots that we tried to hit:
